* {{Flanderization}}: Bites Dorn hard in the second film. In the first, he's certainly a PrimaDonna who sleeps around on his wife, but nonetheless is a talented veteran and legitimate superstar. However his fear of injury in advance of upcoming contract negotiations leads him to playing it safe (read: not making plays he ''should'' be making) so as not to damage his value, which eventually gets him called out by Taylor for spoiling things for the rookies, while also reminding him that he was once a great player. Come the second film, he's whiny and incompetent, and is presented as if her were a complete joke as a player.

** Also runs into StrawmanHasAPoint, in that sacrifice-bunting with your cleanup hitter in the final inning of a close game is illogical by any baseball sense.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: There was a [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] Famicom adaptation that is only a generic baseball game. ''The A.V. Club'' [[http://www.avclub.com/article/japanese-studio-turned-major-league-extraordinarly-207568 even pointed out]] that a weird bordering on InNameOnly platformer like most movie-based NES games could at least capture the zaniness of the source material.

** In the third movie, manager Gus Cantrell is trying to teach hot prospect "Downtown" Anderson baseball fundamentals, so one game he tells him to sacrifice bunt. Anderson defies him and hits a game-winning home run instead. Cantrell chews him out and suspends him for a couple of games. At the end of the movie, a more chaste Anderson (after a failed callup) suggests that he sacrifice...and Cantrell, who later says he "couldn't help himself", tells Anderson to "go downtown." Naturally, Anderson hits the game-winning homer. So remember: If you learn the fundamentals, you'll get the greenlight to hit as many homers as you want!

* {{Sequelitis}}: The original overshadows the more goofy sequels, even in the cast's eyes. By Corbin Bernsen's own admission in an interview with ESPN Radio, "we should've never done them."
